OCTC announces new Plumbing FastTrack program for Fall 2021
OWENSBORO, Kentucky – Owensboro Community & Technical College is launching a new Plumbing FastTrack program in the fall. FastTrack programs use a “earn and learn” model, which gives students the opportunity to earn references quickly so that they can start working in the area of interest as quickly as possible. In addition to practical experiences, instruction is given in building codes and reading blueprints.
Courses begin with an online introductory course and lab courses include basic plumbing skills, plumbing principles, plumbing systems, and plumbing training. At the end of the 12 month program, the student will earn multiple certificates including Freshman Plumber Mechanic, Certified Backflow Tester, Finished Plumber, Service and Repair Plumber, Raw Plumber, 2nd Year Plumber Mechanic, and Maintenance Plumber.
The courses prepare students for licensure and shadowing. The Plumbing FastTrack courses are held on Monday evenings from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Students can work with a success coach on job placement opportunities. Classes begin August 16 at the Industry Innovation Center on OCTC’s main campus at 4800 New Hartford Road.
